Mobile solutions business Mnet has capped its most successful year ever with a host of awards from Australian-based and overseas awards forums.
Easily the most awarded mobile solutions business in Australia and possibly the world, Mnet was just named Specialist Agency of the Year by trade press platform B&T and also won Silver in the category for Specialist Agency of the Year from Campaign Asia. The latest two accolades brought Mnet’s total for the year to 28 significant awards.
Mnet burst into the winners circles this year with the ground-breaking app called “Game On” produced for auto brand Kia that allowed people to use their smartphones in front of their televisions to return the world’s fastest tennis serve. The App was launched to coincide with The Australian Open Tennis Tournament. The fact that “Game On” was funded by Mnet in its early stages won the agency the Mumbrella Bravery Award early in 2014. Throughout the year Mnet’s client work has also been awarded in categories including creativity, experiential, innovation, brand awareness, best app and gaming.
The agency’s depth of award-winning work included INCSnap (Incident Snap), a solution created for Queensland Fire and Emergency Services to better equip first-responders to disasters and quickly communicate images, video and location information disaster to the Command Centre, Government and media outlets. Also awarded was a campaign for the Department of Veteran’s Affairs for the 2015 Gallipoli Ballot.
Further agency accolades in 2014 included Best in Show and three others at the APAC Mobile Marketing Awards, three awards at Spikes Asia, Best in show and three others at The Locus Awards, winner in Government Category at iMedia NSW Awards, winner in Innovation and Auto categories at The Media Federation of Australia awards and three winners at the Australian Mobile Design Awards.
“Innovation, great creative and intuitive user experience is at the core of our successful mobile executions,” said Mnet CEO Travis Johnson. “The Mnet teams across all offices have enthusiastically driven the standard of work and outcomes for clients and this has translated into the extensive peer recognition they all deserve.”
Mnet has a staff of 62 people and offices in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide.
